The Unfinished Glove


  
The Norns spin fate.
Mindful knitters take hold 
one stitch at a time.

Concentration loop by loop.
Memory and Thought knit in peace.
Moments of meditation.
   

    Three fingers left and a thumb.        Around and around before done.

    1. Well, I wrote this one right before the Wednesday prompt was posted, then I wrote the Wednesday prompt because I couldn't pass it up. I wasn't thinking anything about Einstein when I wrote about the glove - but I was thinking about the genius of whoever figured out knitting way back when at the dawn of our race.

      But now I am intrigued. I guess any of the quotes would work with this poem: the Norns were insane, nature is laid out by pattern, and every little stitch is a miracle. What was your idea?

  2. Einstein would have loved the enigma you've presented here - I'm sure! Very cool idea ...

  3. I am confused, as i don't see anything related to Einstein's quotes here....which is the purpose of the prompt....Hope you will give the actual prompt a try.

    1. You are not alone. Please disregard #1 and try #10. When I entered the URL it autofilled to a previous post label. I didn't know that until I got all these comments that don't have anything to do with my Einstein prompt. I am so sorry for all the confusion.

  4. Great photos --- very fun. Cute poem.
    But you ain't no Einstein when it comes to linking to prompts ! ;-)
    But I am glad you made a mistake, this was fun -- especially the photos.
    Great match of pics and words. Thank you

    1. Thank you, Sabio. I'm no Einstein when it comes to other things, as well. Or should I say "all things."
